Mount Cheiron beat Diamond Runner a length over 1m2f at Newcastle last time and both have won over this course and distance before. But it could be the turn of ROSIE CROWE today as she has been placed on Turf the last twice and scored off a higher mark on the all-weather last year. Just Fred finished a bit closer at Salisbury recently having slid down the weights and should confirm running with Zeteah while Pivotal Dream went close off today’s mark at Leicester last month and would figure with a similar effort.
